One Can Only Hope

I can only hope that this is what is going on inside of me right now. I am feeling the ovulation pain. No pain, no gain, right?

Two more weeks to go. Ugh!

Slimmed Where Everybody Knows My Name

So I have been officially slimmed. Today Dr. Feelgood injected me with about 17.5 million spermies. How exciting! And it turms out that I have about 4 or 5 eggs in play but, of course, you never know what may happen. Tomorrow I go back for another round.

What is weird about going to the RE these days is that everyone there knows my name now. I feel a bit like a celebrity and it is bittersweet. It's sweet to feel like people are routing for me. They really cheer me on and know my story and there is something comforting to that. But I am a wee bit bitter about my 1.5 year long worth of visits to the RE's office. I long for the day when I graduate back to my OB-GYN where I am blissfully anonymous. Until then, I guess, you can just call me 'Norma'.

Rolling the Dice


Today I was the first in line to see Dr Feelgood. I was so early today I got there before the office was open. I was hoping that my early arrival would be a good sign and I think it was.

I am now on my 7th IUI cycle. The last one got cancelled because I only had one egg. It looks like I will have 3 this go around--not bad.

This is the last IUI before IVF. I hope this is the One. IUIs will be Thursday and Friday.

Come on lucky 7...

I've been tagged for a couple of memes and I promise to get off my butt very soon. I promise!
